‘Mortuus’ treads a territory that is not for the faint-hearted. Locating itself in the confines of a morgue which has recently scene theft of dead bodies, it presents to us a young police constable who is left alone with the last remaining dead body out of a total of thirteen.

Soon nightmares bleed into reality, and light into darkness to conjure a world of shadows, and jump scares.The visual progression efficiently employs space and performance to share the plot. The predominant action remains completely devoid of dialogue, concealing more than it reveals, and in the process, ensures that the viewer is left with a shiver running down their spine during the course of the film. It would be interesting to see the project developed into a longer storytelling endeavor for the viewer’s benefit.
